it to you throughout the hour. and a good evening to all of you tonight. i'm erin burnett. "outfront," not so friendly fire on capitol hill. a long day of tough questions for president obama's defense secretary nominee, chuck hagel. it was his senate confirmation hearing. and up with of the most contentious moments came when hagel's old friend, and former colleague, senator john mccain, asked whether the 2007 u.s. troop surge in iraq, which you may recall, hagel had called, in his words, the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam, he asked whether that surge had ultimately been successful. >> the question is, were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. i would like to answer whether you were right or wrong, and then you are free to elaborate. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot of things. >> let the record show that you refuse to answer that question. now, please go ahead. >> well, if you would like me to explain why -- >> no, i actually would like an answer. yes or no. >> well, i'm not going to give you a
could take the throne. here's cnn's erin mclaughlin. >> reporter: for over 500 years, this was the resting place of king richard iii. what was once the location of a church is now in municipal car park. archaeologists found his remains here at an ill-fitting shallow, hastily dug grave. they say that he did not have any sort of shroud or coffin. now earlier today, a panel of experts released their findings. culmination of months of detailed analysis involving dna testing, bio carbon testing, and environmental sampling. they can now say beyond any reasonable doubt they have found the remains of king richard iii. >> i can now tell you there's a dna match between the maternal dna from the descendants of the family of richard iii and the remains we found at the grave dig. the dna evidence points to these being the remains of richard iii. >> reporter: richard iii will be reburied at lester cathedral. not far from here. officials say that they are planning to hold a memorial service in his honor so he can have one final resting place, they say, that's dignifying and fit for
the circumstances of his death. >> you know, erin mclaughlin joins us from london. what does this discovery of richard iii mean? >> hi, christine. historians really think this is an opportunity to rewrite history. these are the culmination of months of detailed analysis, including dna testing, radio carbon testing, environmental sampling, and not only tell us beyond any sort of reasonable doubt that this was, in fact, richard iii, but they begin to paint a picture as to who this man was. he was 32 years old when he died. he was suffered from severe scoliosis or curvature of the spine, died at the battle of bosworth due to blunt trauma at the back of his head. his naked body strewn to a horse, brought to a grave and hastily dug and thrown in there without a shroud or coffin. we hope this will paint a different picture of richard iii, one that challenges shakespeare's portrayal of a i'll ha vile and evil monster. >> you hear of this story at the tower of london, how he killed his nephews, the little boys. and this was a medieval time when these were the things that dukes and kings did to each
with the kidnapper, jimmy dykes, who later was killed. >>> this evening, cnn's erin burnett is taking a look at this very story, digging deeper on this amazing operation to rescue this young ethan. what are you guys looking at? >> we have the kind of minute by minute of what happened and it is pretty incredible, when you just see that picture there of the pipe and how they were communicating with jimmy lee dykes who had taken 5-year-old ethan hostage for nearly a week. sort of tick by tick of exactly what happened. it's a pretty incredible story. and we will be joined by the principal of ethan's school, a man who knows the little boy well. we will find out more about ethan as we have reported, he had suffered from asperger's and was obviously struggling this past week. and we will be talking about the big vote for the boy scouts. i know you all were talking about this. we have the numbers on just how influential mormons are in the boy scouts in terms of money and in terms of the number of boy scouts and it's pretty stunning. this decision really could come down to the mormon church. back to
of the many controversial man arcs. this 500-year-old skeleton is that of the long lost king. erin mcloughlin joins us from london. what does the discovery mean? >> this means that beyond any reasonable doubt, they have, in fact, found the remains of richard iii. it means we have more clues as to how he died. we know that he was 32 years old when he rode into the battle of bosworth. we know that he likely died due to blunt trauma to the back of his head. scientists think his naked body was strewn over a horse and carried to a shallow and ill fitted grave and tossed inside without any shroud or coffin. we have a better idea of what richard iii looked like. scientists have used 3-d printing to make a reconstruction of his face. i got to take a look at in thtt morning and speak to one of the experts response bl fible for pg the pace. >> very difficult to tell. we had to use references from the skull and references from contemporary portraits. >> the facial construction of the face itself is pretty accurate, because it's based on the skull? >> absolutely. yes. the structure, the cusculptu
